I'm still on board as a Second String Santa , Mr Claus.

So Santa, if you need to go to the bench to make sure every good Lil CBidder is taken care of, just send a PM my way.

It is also not the 20th yet (as per the original instructions) and I have a feeling The Man in the Red Suit is checking his list twice before releasing more elves.

Don't think it will come to that. I just feel like a little kid running to check the mail. There have been some nice SS hits going on.

I've been thinking a bit on this.

Stinger88 is right. I have felt like a little kid, excitedly checking my bare and lonely porch for goodies each night. And I realized something after reading his post. Anticipation + faith is fun. Anticipation without faith sucks. I have faith today. I believe in secret Santas. And I'm having fun anticipating rebuilding my porch after their bombings.

Also, for me, the gift really is in the giving. I had loads of fun studying my targets and then planning and assembling my ordinance for maximal impact. And I felt like an excited little kid as I watched the tracked packages fly, and then waited for the damage reports. It has been great to read the reports from my and the other targets.

Who-da thunk that an auction site forum would have so many cool and amazing chuckleheads to share this stuff with?

Thanks for being part of a great place to hang out, learn, swap and share, my fellow BOTL/SOTLs. I'm truly grateful.

Back to watching my porch.

Agree NWS. The coffee you sent is pretty darn good. Have fired a smoke up yet but can't wait to try those either.

If you have 90 minutes, I recommend the Kristoff San Andrés. I'm smoking one now from the fiver yours came from. Super excellent construction, flavor & aroma. Merry Christmas, brother.

Don't worry, I'm sure it's just that the mail is slow as usual.

Thankfully a santa from Boston blew up my mailbox yesterday! Hit me with 9 fantastic cigars, two beers I have never seen and some candy my wife called buckeyes and got all giddy about, must be an east coast thing, but they are really good! Thank you for the great and gracious gift!

Will have pictures up soon.

Well said sir and I second that! Been some tough times in the past that this board has helped make it a little more manageable and brought some joy in the day. Wether it is heckling noobs, helping a botl/sotl out, raok or just a good old fashion trade, this place has something to look forward to and great people to share it with. Very thankful to be apart of this madness!

Well it appears Secret Santa has struck my home. The wife called me explaining I received some cigars, alocohol, and tictacs.

During the questioning she asked me who I b*** to get this bombing (first time I was asked that). I had to explain to her it was a secret santa exchange. She stopped providing details about the contents.

She also thanks the Santa for the TicTac's

Tracking available if you want it Harvey. I hope it gets there intact. This santa just noticed the package will be late. Must be too big. Due 12/27.
So im guessing santa will be late with mine as well.

Got my package today. I'm guess its Santa Cigarlover22! Am I rights?!?!

This procrastinating santa is packing his box to ship out tomorrow to some poor fool. I only smoke white owls, dutchmasters, and the occasional phillies blunt.

Stinger you mail box is full so here is the pm I was going to send

Yes sir I am,
I did not work to hard to be secret. Cigars I tried to hit quality harder then quantity. I order a ztorch incert for the lighter but it has not come in yet you will get that later. True, top gun is Navy but more important it is a great 80's man movie that is trying to be as cool as the air force. It is not tequilla it is mescal. Tequila is a type of mescal but not all mescal is tequila. I am a big tequila fan also but I have found meacal often goes better with cigars due to its smoky flavour. Check this link out to get you nerd on

Merry christmas and enjoy

Good Mezcal is like the scotch of tequila and it is priced appropriately. You're a lucky man if you're getting it for Christmas.

Ben, thank you very much. A great hit and yes I can attest to watching Top Gun in the 80's. Much better than Iron Eagle (USAF movie). The wife has claimed a sticker for her car. The other one will go on the travel humidor. I will post the comprehensive list either later tonight or tomorrow. Maybe I will figure out how to post a damn pic on here.

Thanks again.
David

Oh and yes, some of my favorite cigars and two nh.

A SS smackdown from (near, possibly) the Windy City can be found here: http://www.cigarbid.com/...ndy-City-Santa-Strike/?

I'm wondering if FRM might have been involved...
